    Widescreen (1.85:1) presentation. In a remote area of Northern Kenya, activist Tessa Quayle is found brutally murdered. Tessa's companion, a doctor, appears to have fled the scene, and all the evidence points to a crime of passion. Members of the British High Commission in Nairobi assume that Tessa's widower, their mild-mannered and unambitious colleague Justin Quayle, will leave the matter to them. Haunted by remorse and jarred by rumors of his late wife's infidelities, Quayle surprises everyone by embarking on a personal odyssey that will take him across three continents. Using his privileged access to diplomatic secrets, Justin risks his own life and will stop at nothing to expose the truth - a conspiracy more far-reaching and deadly than Quayle could ever have imagined

    The central focus in Volver is a family of women: mother and grandmother Irene, her daughters Raimunda and Sole, and Raimunda's 14-year-old daughter Paula. Irene is dead: She died with the girls' father in a fire many years ago in their birth village in La Mancha. Raimunda lives in Madrid with Paula and her shiftless husband, who is malevolent, irrelevant, or absent. Separated Sole runs an unlicensed beauty parlor in her apartment. Their old aunt, Paula, still lives in the village and speaks about her sister Irene as if she were still alive. When the aunt dies, some things change, many things return, and Raimunda's troubles become extremely complicated. She bustles through them with passionate determination, a hard-working woman pulled in fifty directions, making a life for her family, reveling in every emotion but self-pity
    Tinker tailor soldier spy by Tomas Alfredson( Visual )

    26 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 2,098 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

    "Ein pensionierter Agent des britischen Geheimdiensts wird wieder aktiviert, um einen "Maulwurf" in den eigenen Reihen dingfest zu machen. Suggestive Verfilmung eines Romans von John Le Carré, der konsequent Helden- und Männlichkeitsbilder des Agentenfilm-Genres dekonstruiert. Vor dem tristen Szenario des Kalten Kriegs zeigt der listenreich, labyrinthisch und betont langsam entwickelte Film eine unglamouröse Welt der Spionage, in der Misstrauen und Undurchsichtigkeit regieren und das Politische und Professionelle auch privateste Beziehungen unterwandert, wobei Ideale und Loyalitäten auf der Strecke bleiben."
